GapMinder – Visualize World Development November 23, 2006Posted by Unreasonable in Matters Cartological, Matters Educational, Matters Political, Matters Technological.
In February 2006, Hans Rosling’s gave a stunning TED Presentation demonstrating the GapMinder data visualization interface.
Toward the end of his talk, Rosling said that the world needs a search function to help find data to be analyzed. A couple weeks later Ola Rosling gave a much longer presentation at Google, and Google started hosting an on-line flash version of the GapMinder software. So far they haven’t added anything to it that I can see, but I expect great things.
